11 Movies About Single Parent Families
As a single mom or dad, it’s great to be able to have families you and your kids can relate to on the silver screen. So, grab some popcorn and hit the couch; we’ve compiled a list of must-watch movies for divorced or single parents.
Sleepless in Seattle
Starring: Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan
Plot: A grieving widower's son calls a radio talk show in an attempt to find his father, Sam (Hanks), a partner, when a young woman on the other side of the country, Annie (Ryan), happens to hear his tale and fall in love with the idea of him… and eventually the man himself.
Why We Love It: Not only does the movie imply that single parents deserve to find love (again), but that their kids support them in doing so—after all, it’s Jonah, Sam’s son, who orchestrates the union of Sam and Annie. So, single parents: Stop feeling guilty, and go on a date!
